Football and wine: The perfect pairing?

Posted: Friday, Jan 6th, 2017

PASO ROBLES ó Sports have always been a big part of America. Out of the hundreds of games we play and watch though, which one best represents our nationís character and why?

Whether you are a soccer, hockey, baseball or football fan, you know all too well that the ultimate sports experience is based off much more than just the game itself. The spirit, decoration, food and drinks are all key components that keep the loyal fans coming back for more.†

Football fans will undoubtedly argue that the gameís signature drink ó beer ó is what makes football the great American tradition that it is.

All things considered though, beer is essentially now expected at a football game. In fact, it is almost so common to drink it that the drink itself has lost its feel of originality and specialness. Although this union between football and beer is sacred and not one to interfere with, it is fun to change the play up a little by providing a well-considered menu of nice, relaxing wines, too.

This January, Central Coast sports fans can add some innovated flavor contrast to their football weekends by kicking off their weekend with the ultimate football experience and celebrating Wild Card play-off games with four local downtown Paso Robles wineries.†

On Sunday, Jan. 8, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., the Anglim, Arroyo Robles, LBT and Pianetta Wineries invite sports enthusiasts from far and wide to indulge in a day of football, wine and cheer at the Touch-Down-Town Progressive Football Game.†

Whether you are watching the 1:05 p.m. ET American Football Conference (AFC) game between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers or the National Football Conference (NFC) game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers at 4:40 p.m. ET, be sure to remember that football isnít just for beer drinkers, said Kelly Hover of Pianetta Winery.
